Word spreads about Nazi / demon horror
Top horror mag Fangoria (issue 301, pictured) has got its chompers into The Devil’s Rock, and has produced a nice little article on the forthcoming movie, which hopefully will draw yet more attention to it.

The edition also contains absorbing interviews with masterclass terror-scribes Richard Matheson and William F. Nolan, so it’s worth checking out just for those.
After working in the horror/dark fantasy/thriller medium for the last 20 years, this – as far as I’m aware – is the first time my name has ever been mentioned in Fangoria, which has to be one of the world’s most popular horror magazines. If nothing else, that shows the power of the movies, but it also has to be seen as a bit of a result – so much time seems to have passed (two years in fact) since I was first writing this script, blabbing into a Dictaphone while walking my dog through the Christmas snow. It seems very difficult to associate those first few bits of speculative dialogue with what is now emerging, but that’s the movie business.
Meanwhile, thanks must go to top US novelist and good friend of mine, Brian Keene, who tipped me off about this and has given the film a great little plug on his own website
I hope shortly to recommence work on my movie adaptation of Brian’s grim but sexy horror novel, Dark Hollow, with Paul Campion, who directed The Devil’s Rock, at the helm. Campion, Keene and Finch? Does that have a kind of 'unholy trinity' ring to it? At the risk of sounding conceited, I like to think so.
